    Good working environment. The vast majority of people who work here are easy to work with, kind, and sharp. I appreciate the flexibility of remote work.

    I have been working at New York Times full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Im just feeling burnt out by the h stress of this company

    Cons

    I work for a third party. They do not provide holiday pay and they really make you feel unimportant.

    Advice to Management

    You should pay the customer service reps working in Orlando a little more money especially if we do billing, fix customers computer problems, and deal with angry subscribers. At least give us paid holidays! Also stop favoring STS! We work just as hard as them, but you feed them and give them gift cards! What about gen care who works the trenches!

    I have been working at New York Times full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Re the business side: Very smart people are drawn to the Times for its mission, reputation and -- lately --emergence as a legitimate innovator in publishing and digital media.

    Cons

    Re the business side: Poor process, low comp relative to industry standards. They say there's a Times discount: people will join and stay for relatively less salary because of its mission and reputation. It's also recovering from a period of near financial death, so is under resourced in key management and operations functions.

    Advice to Management

    On the business side Invest in management and operations to improve performance and employee experience, which can be pretty chaotic.
